Have fond memories of Larry and his family as we were growing up in the Martin Mills area. Also of knowing about him during the time my mom worked at the Court House with Elizabeth. Much love and many prayers for Elizabeth and the family. God Bless you, Sandra

I have some my memories of Larry that I do not know where to start or what to say. He was a kind, sweet, and always smiling. As a kid I would stand out by his truck while they were picking the kids up and would talk to him. I loved to talk and everyone usually would tell me to be quite but Larry would listen and laugh at all the stupid things i would say. H e would always act like he cared what I said I was a young kid and I look back now and wish I could tell him THANK -YOU. H e was always so soft spoken and kind. I know he will be missed by so many people. Also I would like the family to know how sorry I am and I am sorry I could not make the funeral but I LOVE YOU ALL.
